Stanfield is a nursing home located in Rushwick, Worcester. We provide general nursing care, dementia care and palliative care for people who experience a range of health issues. There are a number of reasons for visiting Stanfield. Whether you are visiting a loved one or want to brighten someone’s day, the impact of your visit can be invaluable.
When can you visit Stanfield Nursing Home?
Stanfield is always open to visitors. Having no formal visiting times is one of the many reasons we stand out as a nursing home in Worcester. People can visit Stanfield at any time and we always welcome new faces.
We know how difficult it can be to find the time to visit a loved one. But if you are able to make a trip then Stanfield will ensure that your visit is memorable for all the right reasons.
Our care home has a number of rooms that accommodate different types of visits. There are many quiet sitting rooms where visitors can spend time with their loved ones in peace, outside of their private rooms. Alternatively, our main sitting room, the Oak Lounge, hosts a variety of activities each day. This makes it perfect for people who want to get involved and for visiting entertainers to perform.
During the Covid-19 pandemic, we installed a visiting room to ensure relatives could still visit their families safely.
With things returning to normal, here’s how we continue to seek to maintain a safe environment at Stanfield:
- Maintaining high levels of infection prevention, including staff still wearing masks
- We ask people to wear masks when moving around the home but they are free to remove them inside their loved one’s personal room
- Visitors are also asked to apply hand gel upon entering
- We are always tracking Government guidance
Get involved in activities when visiting our nursing home
When visiting our nursing home in Worcester, you can enjoy activities you have always done with your relative.
At Stanfield, we follow a person-centred philosophy. This means that every aspect of our care is focused on the individual and their needs, hobbies and interests. We put together an activities calendar each month that takes these interests into account.
Some examples of things to do with your loved ones include:
- Chatting and catching up: Simply having a conversation and spending time together can be a great way to brighten someone’s day.
- Reading aloud: If your loved one enjoys reading, you could bring a book and read it aloud to them.
- Playing games: Board games, card games, and other types of activities can be a fun way to pass the time and engage with other people we care for.
- Doing a craft: Art projects, such as colouring or painting, can be a relaxing and enjoyable activity for both.
- Going for a walk: If the weather is nice and your loved one is able, going for a walk outside can be a great way to get some fresh air and exercise.
- Watching a movie or TV show: We welcome family and friends to bring a DVD or stream a show either in your loved one’s personal room or in our Oak Lounge.
- Listening to music: Music can be a powerful form of therapy, and listening to their favourite songs can be a wonderful way to connect and bring back memories.
However, a lot depends on the individual. You may be visiting Stanfield with an idea of what you’re going to do for the day. Remember to keep your loved one’s interests and abilities in mind and be prepared to do something different if they want to.
Can you bring children and pets?
Yes to both!
People we care for often love to see children. So encouraging them to talk to others, not just their relatives, when visiting can really brighten up their day.
Pets are also welcome when visiting Stanfield Nursing Home. The reunions between family and pets are always a joy to see. However, some people are not as comfortable around certain animals. As such, we ask that you are careful and take others into consideration when moving around the home.
